*** This isn’t good – another graph from the HVS report:
WHO IS MAKING MONEY?
— LNP! —
** What business are making money off conventions: hotels and restaurants (the first graph below from the HVS report).
Which hotel is making money off conventions: the Marriott Hotel that pays no taxes and was built and is being expanded with your money and is owned by LNP and High Industries (the second graph below).
A CORRUPT MAN!
* Robert (Bob) Krasne, the Chairman of the Board of LNP, had the unmitigated gall to retweet the above. You are a liar and a disgrace to the public and journalism, Krasne! An absolutely disgusting liar!
This email in this morning (thank you!):
It’s been a while since the propaganda arm of Penn Square Partners and the Lancaster County Convention Center Authority… Lancaster Newspapers has been in full swing but they have returned with a vengeance this morning. Not 1 or 2 but 3 self-serving articles short on any facts, other than those in a report bought and paid for from the same firm that played the same role to get it going in the first place with nonsense reports.
Notice there were no financial details provided by the LCCCA but I’m sure we can rely on the positive statements of Kevin Molloy. Can you believe that he even has a job, let alone a 6-figure one? He was run out of town at the site of his last job and his current job holds virtually no authority as the LCCCA gave away all power to Interstate in the one sided agreements they entered into with our partner PSP. Paying any taxes at that new Marriott expansion? I have a story idea for you… a full scale study of every dollar spent at the Marriott, convention center and soon to be (Brunswick) Holiday Inn that came from public coffers.
